China Smartphone AP Tracker

The local China market first made headway in the mobile handset industry when MediaTek and the China whitebox supply chain partnered up to dramatically expand the 2G feature phone market in China. With 3G smartphones now becoming the global standard, local smartphone makers have only grown stronger and are now exporting China-made smartphones to help fuel rapid growth in emerging markets. This success has not gone unnoticed by major application processor (AP) providers such as Qualcomm and MediaTek, and the quickly growing market has also helped drive growth for local players such as Spreadtrum and Leadcore, among others.

To provide a better understanding of the dynamics seen in the China AP market, Digitimes Research provides a quarterly tracking service that updates customers with the latest shipment data and technology trends in the market.

Customers of the Digitimes Research China Smartphone Application Processor Tracker (China Smartphone AP Tracker) are provided with comprehensive data updates, market intelligence and quarterly shipment forecasts in key research areas, including Core Architecture, Top AP Vendor performance, and the shipment structure of top vendors.

Research scope

The Digitimes Research China Smartphone AP Tracker covers AP shipments made to China-based device makers for use in smartphones, including for devices sold in the domestic and international markets.

Product and schedule

The Digitimes Research China Smartphone AP Tracker is an annual service based on four quarterly reports. Within the first month of each quarter, Digitimes Research provides preliminary data from the previous quarter as well as a data forecast for the upcoming quarter. These data sets are quickly followed by comprehensive and to-the-point analysis of the data, provided in a presentation style report. As Digitimes Research continues to monitor the market, approximately midway through the quarter customers are provided with an updated version of the data sets.

China Smartphone Tracker

China's smartphone industry is currently benefitting from a maturing white-box sector combined with an increasingly confident first-tier of local vendors who believe they can compete with the world's leading smartphone vendors, both in the China market and internationally.

Local players accounted for 70% of demand in the domestic China market in 2013. China-based vendors have also begun flexing their muscles in international markets, with 35% of global smartphone shipments being accounted for by China players in 2013.

In 2014, the global top 10 will feature five China-based smartphone vendors, while the white-box segment will make significant market share gains internationally, especially in emerging markets.

To provide a better understanding of the interesting and complicated dynamic seen in China's smartphone market, Digitimes Research offers a quarterly tracking service that updates customers with the latest shipment data and trends in the market.

This service is in fact two services in one. The first area of coverage is local demand in China, with shipments of local vendors and international brands being tracked on a quarterly basis.

The second area of coverage is overall shipments by China players, for both domestic and international markets.

These two services combine to provide a comprehensive demand and supply-side tracking service of the China smartphone market, while also including analysis to explain a complicated market, where players sometimes act as a brand in the local market and as an ODM/EMS service provider for international customers in emerging markets.
